The Truthiness of the Matter (BSM – 4/7/08)

The Truthiness of the Matter (BSM – 4/7/08)

Ever since Sweetney did her Truthiness Self-portrait post about a month ago, many women I know from around the ‘net have joined in to share themselves – no shower, no hair brushed, no makeup, no teeth brushed – first thing in the morning too.

I took these pictures over a week ago and have been holding them hostage onto them, but the time has come for full disclosure. Here I am – the “real me” – moments after I woke up (oh, and my little friends joined in too).

Me in the morning - March 2008 Me and Ava in the morning - March 2008 Me and Julian in the morning - March 2008

Head on over to Mother May I to see what everyone else has in store for their Best Shot Monday posts.

  1. Aw your gorge, mama! Love it. :) Now you just need to take the next step and post a Fo’ Realz pic of your home. ;)

  2. Amy, you’re a brave woman. :)

    And may I say, you look fresh-faced and cute and natural. I don’t think I look so cute first thing in the morning, but of course I can’t tell for sure, b/c without my contacts I don’t really see anything, and once I put them in, it is after my face has already been washed.

    Great photos. :)

  3. Another brave woman! Ahhh, you still look good, albeit tired. ;)

  4. You know, you look gorgeous even first thing in the morning!

    I think about this a lot. There are so few pictures of me. I take pictures of everyone else at their best and worst moments and think nothing of it…but if I’m going to have pictures of myself I want to look good. So even if there are pics of me I don’t share them or (gasp) I delete them. It’s really a problem. So good for you for just doing it! I need to lighten up on myself and allow pictures of the “real me” too.

  5. How cute are you??? I don’t think I’ve mentioned it before, but you look so much like my best friends’ DSister (but she doesn’t have your gorgeous full lips) :-)

  6. At least that was in the morning and not at 4pm in the afternoon! I’ve looked like that right before the hubby comes home and I’ll jump in the shower and brush my teeth to impress him! LOL! Yeah, right!

  7. Not bad at all! :-) You look very pretty- just a bit tired, but we all understand that! I’ll have to think about doing this too- not sure if the blogosphere is ready for those pictures though. Thanks for sharing.

  8. You know, I may have to join you on this one, do tell me kidlettes are not required (otherwise there will be a delay ;-))

    Love the kid pose.

  9. Amy… how do you look so NORMAL? I look like a train wreck upon waking up!! What’s your secret. And how does your hair look so good!??
    I may scare people if I do one… but I will do one!!

  10. See, you have that inner glow, that look so peaceful, so comforting and mommy-ish. You look gorgeous.

  11. I don’t think that counts because you don’t look bad. And you say you just woke up? It’s just not fair.

  12. So cute! And I love that you had ‘helpers’ too!

  13. I am loving everyone’s truth photos. Your helpers are great!

  14. You look tired – but great!! Love your little helpers.

  15. these are wonderful. good for you! and i love that the kiddos joined in:-)

  16. Amy, I love it! I might have to actually do this one!

  17. They are fantastic – just so real!! You look beautiful.

  18. You look wonderful and sleepy…yes I have hair envy…what shampoo do you use..haha love your “friends” you all look so cozy!

  19. You still look a little sleepy in that first pic! Fun shots!

  20. I think that you are as cute as your avatar,and that you look great! If only I could look that good when I wake up! Your blog is awesome,and I love your work!!!!

  21. I loves me some truthiness, yes I do! And you are just as cute as your little icon sitting up there, topright! Yay! :-)
